Beyond Residency

Residency training at Yale provides you with the foundation for a successful and satisfying career. However, you have to decide exactly what that career will be. I have heard residents ask the same questions year after year about finding a job, writing a resume, securing a fellowship. While some specifics of these processes change from year to year, some do not.

The purpose of this website is to provide information which, while readily accessible on the internet, is not currently gathered in one convenient location. We have looked at several resources and collected helpful websites, as well as specific advice from faculty and graduates who have been through these processes and have a great deal to share. This site is not intended to be definitive advice that will guarantee you secure your perfect job or fellowship. However, our hope is that we have created a baseline of information that all of our residents should have, as well as the resources to access further help and assistance as needed. Parts of the site involve key resources and suggestions which should be considered universal rules. Other parts involve matters of opinion or style, where you are encouraged to be more selective in your interpretation of the suggestions and apply them to your own personal situation. Above all, we wish you luck in your career pursuit, and hope this site is a helpful resource for you.

Best, Julie
